30 Games Left



With 30 games left on the 2013-14 season the Wizards are exactly where they wanted to be when the season began. They're constantly toying with .500 (a benchmark number) and currently in the Eastern Conference playoff picture. They're healthy and John Wall and Bradley Beal just showed the world this past weekend why the Wizards have a bright future with those two in the backcourt.

If the season ended today (at 52 games) it would be deemed a success by all fans (even myself, who originally viewed this season as a disaster waiting to happen). So far "the plan" is working and with the last third of the season forthcoming, interest in this team should be reaching a five year high amongst the DMV, with checking the standings becoming a morning ritual for everybody.

These next eight weeks are critical, especially with their recent two game losing streak, a slight slip in the standings, and the shrinking gap between being amongst the top 8 in the conference or being on the outside looking in.

The way I see it, these next 30 games will go a long way into setting the stage for the next 2-3 seasons:

  • Will they make the playoffs?
  • Will Grunfled make a move before the deadline?
  • Can they stay healthy?
  • Who's bringing the bench spark?
  • How will Wittman handle coaching in "must win" games, being in hostile environments, and scheming "X's and O's" in the 4th quarter?
  • How does Wall handle that same pressure?
  • Can they beat the "bad" teams and split against the "good" ones?
30 games to determine the future of a GM, coaching staff, and free-agents-to-be.
30 games to see what this team is really made of.
30 games with the pressure being dialed up.
30 games left.
